Goose step

Canada Goose watercolour 35 x 46 cm

Every evening a flock of geese lift off from the Sound and fly over our house to settle on the fields and the local golf course. The next morning they are back in the water again. This morning was no exception and I was able to single one out for a painting. It was difficult to get near them, as soon as I moved nearer they all stood up and started walking away. I had to inch my way forward a little at a time, in slow motion. Finally I was so near I could see their feathers ruffling in the wind and the light playing on their backs. I don't think I'll paint the whole flock but perhaps a few more .......
